Vision 

The Center for International Business Studies supports the International Business Program in developing an internationally-recognized International Business Program.

 

Mission 

The Center for International Business Studies supports the International Business Program by soliciting funding for program activities and operating programs that enhance it. First, the Center's primary mission is to solicit, from both private and public agencies, grant funds that facilitate the International Business Program. The Center then utilizes those funds to enhance the International Business Program's faculty, curriculum, courses, students, student experiences, and business community relationships. Second, the Center creates a College-wide environment in which international business education becomes a focus for students, faculty, and the northeast Florida business community through its international business internship, study abroad, faculty exchange, and speaker programs. Third, the Center promotes the International Business Program in Jacksonville, the United States and the world both through the Internet and via conventional marketing methods. Fourth, the Center facilitates international business in the northeast Florida region by working with area businesses to supply needed information about international trade opportunities.
